Rekeying locks involves recalibrating the lock so that it can work with a different key. At Nearby Locksmiths, we can rekey your locks by removing the original fitting in the lock cylinder and replacing them with new ones.
There are many reasons property owners may want to rekey their locks, the main reason is to maintain control over who gets to enter the property. For residential properties that have changed owners, or where keys may be with different people, rekeying locks enables better control over the access to the property and adds an extra level of security.
Similarly, maintenance providers, contractors, or past tenants may have copies of your house key – so to ensure the highest form of privacy and security, you might consider the option of rekeying.
